I started a lawn and maintenance service about three months ago. The work is slowly coming in, but really enjoying being my own boss for a change. Im learning alot about marketing and advertising here on the forums. The only problem I have is finding an appropriate contract that fits me. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Thomas,

Welcome to our forum!

Many times this is how we see contracts used.

Early on, new lawn care businesses tend not to use them with residential contracts.

As they have a few issues over time, they begin to use estimate forms with some contractual wording.

Later as they run into more issues, the start to use full blown contracts.

There are a bunch of free contracts here that you can look through and use.

Does this help at all?

Welcome to the forum!

There are a few florida locals on here, i am one of them.

I actually use a contract i found on here :). A few words changed around and i was good to go. Added some stuff, removed some stuff, decreased some stuff, increased some stuff.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop a line. I like to bug steve on the normal basis! *nudge nudge*

You can bug me too if you want :). I am rarely offended by it.
